        Life On Earth : Signed By The Author With An Early Signed Letter From The Author To His School Chemistry Teacher.

      The First UK Printing published by Collins / BBC in 1979. The BOOK is in near Fine condition with the slightest of pushing at the spine ends. The book appears unread. The cloth is clean and the gilt titling bright. Free from erasures, inscriptions and markings. The WRAPPER is price-clipped and is in near Fine condition. The tiniest rub to the upper spine. The spine colouring is not faded. The wrapper looks very attractive in the removable Brodart archival cover. A very sharp copy. The book has been simply Signed by the Author to the title page. Accompanied by an early 3 page H/W letter on headed paper which is undated but predates 'Zoo Quest For A Dragon' which was published in 1956. The letter is addressed to Mr Pickles, who was Attenborough's chemistry master at Wyggeston Grammar school for boys in Leicester. In this warm letter to Mr Pickles, Attenborough refers to '.I feel a little embarrassed at apologising for this delay to my schoolmaster who assessed years ago the large amount of insolence and lack of application in my character (I seem to recall such phrases in my reports). I know therefore if I start writing elaborate excuses you will discount them immediately'. He then got onto to discuss that 'I seem to have lost contact almost entirely with Leicester.On the whole, it is perhaps a good thing; For many people in Leicester know too much about my guilty past!' Later in the letter, he refers to 'At the moment my greed for money has landed me with an appalling job of writing a book. It's supposed to be about British Guiana and I am finding it a fearful labour. I hope it may turn out to be a 'Grey Wonder', but I fear it is destined to be another 'Yellow Peril' (The book in question was destined to be The first of the highly successful 'Zoo Quest' titles). He finishes by discussing a potential trip to the East and 'It is so nice to think that Leicester people haven't entirely forgotten us.' The letter has been folded once. A wonderful honest and enlightening letter from David Attenborough at the very start of his career with a scarce signed Attenborough highlight title. Collectible with such attributes. Ashton Rare Books welcomes direct contact.

        Paddington Takes The Test

      London: Collins, 1979. First edition of the eleventh book in the Paddington series. Octavo, original cloth. Signed by Michael Bond on the half-title page. Fine in a near fine dust jacket. Again we find Paddington in excellent form--and, as usual, up to his ears in trouble. By accident he takes a driving test and is later presented with a certificate to drive something very special. Somehow his neighbor, Mr. Curry, is padlocked into Mr. Brown's new steaming-hot sauna bath, while Paddington has difficulty remembering his combinations. Paddington Takes the Test is packed full of the bear's well-meaning intentions, which go hilariously wrong. "Children will laugh right along as Paddington propels himself from one light-hearted disaster to another" (Booklist, ALA).

        The Stand

      New English Library (NEL) 1979 - Stephen King (1979) ‘The Stand’, UK first edition, first printing, published by the New English Library (NEL). Condition: near fine with just a whiff of foxing to the page block edges, all else fine. Near fine dust jacket which is NOT clipped and correctly priced at £6.95. Housed in an aftermarket hand made slipcase to protect the book. This is one of the most difficult King trade editions to come by. The print run was reportedly less than 1,000 copies. In contrast, the US Doubleday first traded edition published in the US had a print run of 70,000 copies. If you subtract all the copies that went to British public libraries receiving the ‘stamp treatment’, and all the copies with a clipped dust jacket, or penned names of previous owners it becomes clear how rare this item is in a decent collectable condition. ‘The Stand’ is the favourite novel of many King fans. It was re-released in 1990 as a complete an unabridged version. ‘The Stand’ was adapted as a TV-series in 1994. For years plans have been in the cooker for a better feature film or mini-series adaptation. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Our Day And Generation

      U.S.A.: Simon & Schuster, 1979 A fine first edition in a fine dust jacket, inscribed by Kennedy in 1982 and also signed by Tip O'Neill, on the front free endpaper. Complete row of numbers to 1 on the copyright page and original price of $12.95 on the front flap. A collection of extracts from Kennedy's speeches, published in 1979, a year after he reached his Senate peak as Chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee. This book was clearly a calculated part of his effort in 1979 and 1980 to run for President of the United States. After years of delay in the shadow of the Chappaquiddick tragedy in 1969, Kennedy finally decided to seek the Democratic nomination in the 1980 presidential election by launching an unusual, insurgent campaign against the incumbent Carter, a member of his own party. A midsummer 1978 poll had shown Democrats preferring Kennedy over Carter by a 5-to-3 margin. During spring and summer 1979, as Kennedy deliberated whether to run (and published this book of his speeches), Carter was not intimidated despite his 28 percent approval rating, saying publicly: "If Kennedy runs, I'll whip his ass." And he did. Kennedy formally announced his campaign on November 7, 1979, at Boston's Faneuil Hall. He had already received substantial negative press from a rambling response to the question "Why do you want to be President?" during an interview with Roger Mudd of CBS News broadcast a few days earlier. More importantly, Kennedy's disgraceful behavior at Chappaquiddick 10 years earlier came back to haunt him.. Inscribed by Author(s). 1st Edition. Hardcover. Fine/Fine.

        Ratificatio facta p[er] m[agnifi]cu[m] d[ominum] Jo[hannes] Carolu[s] de Affaytalis, in favorem m[agnifi]ci et r[everen]di d[omino]. Guidi d[e] Crema et Rafaelis Krumani p[e]r Castro S[anc]ti Laurentii et terris.Antwerp, 20 January 1546. Manuscript notarial document in Latin, written in a Latin hand on one side of a single piece of sheepskin parchment (31 x 54.5 cm), opening with a large capital and closing with the notary's decorative signature, with the title and "M. Johan Carlo" on the back. Folded and loosely inserted in a paper folder (ca. 1690s?).

      For Affaitati: Kellenbenz, “Die Konkurrenten der Fugger als bankiers der Spanischen Krone”, in: Zeitsch. Unternehmensgeschichte XXIV (1979), pp. 81-98. An Antwerp notarial declaration made voluntarily by Giovan Carlo Affaitati, also known as Johannes Carolus de Affaytadi (Cremona 1500 or 1510-Lier 1555 or Ghistelle 1587) soon after he moved to Antwerp, on behalf of Guido de Crema, citizen of Mantua, and Raphael Brumani, citizen of Cremona. It was drawn up before the Antwerp notary Anthony Amala and three named witnesses and appears to concern De Crema and Brumani's inheritance. Affaitati testified to the content of a document drawn up on 31 December 1545 before the Mantua notary Hieronimus de Zizolis. Affitati came from a merchant banking family in Cremona. He set up in Lisbon but moved to Antwerp in 1545, when the Holy Roman Emperor Karl V made him Baron of Ghistelle. He was active in the spice trade and is said to have been the most important financier of the wars of the Holy Roman Emperor Karl V and King Philip II of Spain.Formerly folded to a smaller size, leaving traces of the old folds, but still in very good condition. A primary document recording Karl V's financier in Antwerp, only months after he moved there.

This copy, which is a reprint of the second edition, also has Mamet's card laid in, inscribed "Greetings and love from Copenhagen. September 1977, D.M." This book first came to market after Mamet's divorce from his first wife the actress Lindsay Crouse in 1990, and a subsequent library sale through Strand, New York. This card was inscribed, presumably to her, in the year their married, and evidently found its way back into this copy. This is an excellent theatrical association for Beckett, and notably early in Mamet's career. The Pulitzer Prize winning author of Lakeboat (1970) said in 1977, "Beckett and Pinter - of course I'm influenced by them". Buning adds, "Mamet is influenced by Beckett, because, as it were, he can't help it".

        Gedenkwaerdige gesantschappen der Oost-Indische Maetschappy in 't Vereenigde Nederland, aen de Kaisaren van Japan: vervatende wonderlyke voorvallen op de togt der Nederlandtsche gesanten: beschryving van de dorpen, sterkten, steden, landtschappen, tempels, gods-diensten, dragten, gebouwen, dieren, gewasschen, bergen, fonteinen, vereeuwde en nieuwe oorlogs-daaden der Japanders.Amsterdam, Jacob Meurs, "1669" [=ca. 1681]. Folio. With engraved frontispiece, 1 folding map with travel routes in Japan, 20 double-page and 4 larger folding engraved plates, and 71 half-page engravings in the text. Early 18-century tanned sheepskin, gold-tooled spine with label; rebacked with the original backstrip laid down.

      Cordier, Japonica, col. 383; Landwehr & V.d. Krogt, VOC 522; Tiele, Bibl. 762; cf. V. Eeghen, "Arnoldus Montanus's book on Japan," in: Quaerendo II (1979), pp. 250-272. Second edition (often erroneously described as the first) of Montanus's very detailed and thoroughly illustrated account of Japan, containing the first known printed images of the small island of Dejima, in Nagasaki harbour, the Japanese outpost of the VOC (Dutch East India Company), connected to the mainland by a bridge. The title-page notes that the book is based on the manuscripts and notes of the VOC delegations (to the Shogun), and that the illustrations were drawn in Japan. The folding map shows the sea route along the coast from Nagasaki to Osaka andthe land route along the coast from Osaka to Yedo (Tokyo). The four folding views show profiles of the cities of Osaka, Miaco (Kyoto), Yedo and Kagoshima. The double-page plates showing the plan of the city of Batavia in the Dutch East Indies, the island of Dejima and the castle at Osaka, and the half-page view of the quarters at Firando (p. 28) are particularly important as authentic sources, never before published.From 1641 the Dutch were the only foreigners allowed to trade with Japan, although subject to rigid restrictions outside the VOC outpost on Dejima island. They had to renew permission to trade with Japan annually, for which they sent a delegation from Dejima to the Shogun in Yedo. Montanus based the present work on the unpublished reports of these journeys, from the VOC archives. Montanus also digresses onto the subjects of Japanese religion, history and natural history. Rebacked as noted and binding scuffed but structurally sound. Frontispiece slightly thumbed and some minor smudges throughout, otherwise in very good condition.

        Nederduytsche poemata.Amsterdam, Willem Jansz. Blaeu, 1616. 4to. With engraved allegorical title-page and 66 engraved illustrations, all on integral leaves and mostly emblematic, by Crispijn de Passe, his two sons Crispijn Jr. and Simon, Michel le Blon after Jacob de Gheyn, and Jacob Matham after David Vinckboons. Late 19th-century gold-tooled dark brown morocco by Henri-Joseph Pierson, each board with the crowned and supported arms of Victor Masséna (1836-1910) in Paris , Prince d'Essling and Duc de Rivoli.

      De la Fontaine Verwey, "Willem Jansz en de Nederlandse emblematiek. I. Daniel Heinsius als Nederlands dichter", in: Uit de wereld van het boek, III (1979), pp. 97-113, esp. pp. 108-109; Franken, De Passe 1348. First issue of the second and best edition of Daniel Heinsius's poetical works in Dutch, edited by Petrus Scriverius and probably published in the second half of 1616. The first edition, using all of the present copper plates, had appeared around the beginning of the year, but the typesetting and layout were so sloppy that Scriverius had to add an extensive list of corrigenda and convinced Blaeu to produce the present corrected edition.This handsome book, containing the collected Dutch poems of the famous Leiden professor and Neo-Latin and Dutch poet Daniel Heisius (1580-1655), was edited by the famous humanist and scholar Petrus Scriverius (1576-1660). It was a milestone in the history of Dutch literature, introducing a new and more Renaissance orientated style and vocabulary, and promoting the acceptance of Dutch as a literary language. With a later bookplate. Very good copy with an interesting provenance. Washed, and with tears repaired in 2 leaves, slightly affecting the text, but generally in very good condition. Binding fine, with only very slight wear at the edges of the boards and spine.
